3 T. sugar

1 1/2 t. salt

Bread Machine Instructions:

Heat milk to lukewarm (90-100°F.). Place milk, flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, salt, yeast, and 2 tablespoons butter in bread machine according manufactures directions or in the order listed. Set machine to dough setting and knead. Machine will knead approximately 10-15 minutes. Allow bread to rise in machine until double in bulk.

Hand Instructions:

Heat milk to lukewarm. Add yeast, 3 tablespoons sugar and stir. Soften 2 tablespoons butter and add. Gradually stir in flour and salt until all flour is added. Turn dough out on a slightly floured surface and knead until smooth and satiny and tiny air bubbles form just under the surface of the dough. Place in a clean buttered bowl, cover, place in warm location and allow to rise until double in bulk.

Both Methods:

Remove dough from pan or bowl and knead to remove excess air. Roll dough out on a slightly buttered surface into approximately a 10 x 15 inch rectangle. Soften remaining butter and spread over top of dough. Sprinkle with cheese and garlic salt to taste. Using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, cut rectangle into 12 strips. Hold each strip of dough by the ends and twist into 2-4 times. Place dough twists on a greased cookie sheet. Brush with additional butter and sprinkle with additional garlic salt, if desired. Allow dough to rise 5 minutes. Bake at 350°F. for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
